I got this product as a back up for my diva cup and it works great! They are a little thicker than I thought they would be but still very comfortable!
Thicker than regular underwear but not visible through my jeans (they are not tight). I prefer to wear these at home and overnight. Very absorbent and fit well. Wouldn’t mind if they were slightly higher over my belly when I sit. But overall happy. Glad I finally ordered :)
good fit, no leaks
This was my first time trying something besides a tampon or pad and I was impressed that there were no leaks and it was way more comfortable than wearing a pad. Also I was impressed that underwear stay dry to the touch. I think this style is bulkier than what I need so I'm trying the Hiphugger and classic next and I can save the Highwaist for my heaviest day or overnight.
Perimenopause, I am starting my menopause adventure. I wear these cute, comfortable panties with confidence. I bought 9 pairs, and I will definitely buy some more
Every girl should own Sphinx in my opinion. They are an AMAZING product! I have never been more comfortable on my period before. I no longer feel like I’m wearing a diaper or am concerned my tampon will leak. I also feel that wearing Sphinx shortens the length of my periods because my body is allowed to do it’s natural thing.
I was skeptical, but after trying these, I'll never go back to pads! One pair lasted me all day on day 1, day 2 (which is my heaviest day), one pair lasted all day, I only took them off an hour or two before bed (after 16H) because a little blood came through on the edges and was starting to leave a little red rub off residue on the inside of my jeans, it wasn't visible from the outside though, and if that's when they decided to "leak" then I'm satisfied! They are sooo comfy! I have 3 pairs of Highwaist and 3 pairs of hiphuggers, so I'm covered for every day of my cycle, and I'm happy to be able to say that! Thank you Sphinx!
I was so skeptical of all Sphinx underwear from the beginning, but I am obsessed now and tell everyone I know about them. I have an incredibly heavy flow and these super absorbent ones truly work. I have no clue how they work (especially without leaking) -- all I know is that these are a true game changer for me!
The Sphinx Highwaist is what I've been waiting for
For a few years now I've been using period panties to replace disposable pads during my period. However, I still had to use pads on the heaviest flow days because none of the them could keep up. Now I can wear Sphinx Highwaist for the whole period, no more disposables needed!
I used the hiphugger prior to my first pregnancy but the Highwaist for postpartum is a game changer! The highwaist is always great for a c section and so comfy.
I absolutely love these! I can wear them for hours on my heaviest days without worrying about leaks. I have been using Sphinx for over a year now and I am completely hooked.
Very surprised!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have a really heavy flow for the first 3 days of my period. I haven’t found anything that would help besides pads. I tried the cup, disc, tampons, etc and nothing worked! But I gave this a try and it helped me sooo much!! I love it
My hip is 36.5 inch, I bought Highwaist medium because I have a bigger butt. It’s better fitting over the butt area than the classic. It also absorbs more that the classic. I have a heavy flow that I leak onto my sheets so bad with a pad I need to change them in the night. Well I no longer need to change my sheets because the highwaist work and catch my flow.
I purchased this set of highwaist for my daughter who is almost 12. Her period is REALLY heavy in the beginning and has leaked through her clothes at school and was devastated. She walked through the door glowing, non stressed knowing her Sphinx could hold 5 tampons worth. This was such peace of mind for her & we are ordering more. THANK YOU!!!!
Great product. For reference, I am 5'5, 123 pounds and bought the mediums and they fit fine. No leakage. Could probably do a small or a medium if you're in that range, I just don't like tight anything. Also, I accidentally dried mine once and they are still holding up. I was terrified I ruined my new expensive undies!
Wish I didn't wait so long . . .
I LOVE my SPHINX. I heard about them months before I finally purchased, and I wish that I didn't. I get sick of using tampons after a few days and I now use these when I'm just lounging around at home and don't want to be using any products. They are also great for sleeping, and I've never had a leak on my sheet . They are also great for heavy days, if you want a little bit extra protection.
My experience using this Highwaist set for postpartum was that the pair gave slight compression, which was relieving.
I bought 2 sizes bigger after the pregnancy for postpartum. the highwaist would not stay up as I started to loose some weight and became rather uncomfortable rolled down. Other than that, the set was perfect. Comfortable, sleek and absorbent.
Panties to bleed on?
I always end up bleeding on my panties because I underestimate my flow or just get lazy to change after 12H (gross, but I don’t care). Sphinx have been awesome for me, though admittedly, I don’t have a very heavy flow, so I haven’t put them through a very vigorous test. Normally I have a light flow, and at the heaviest, I’d say it’s a generous medium flow. Absolutely no problems with leakage. I was worried about rinsing and washing, it I had no problems after just following the directions. Love them!
I love these panties! Cute, comfy and absorbent. I sleep in these and wear them around the house and usually use a cup when out and about.
I love sphinx for medium to light flow days. They’re also great to wear with tampons so you never have to worry about leakage. I will definitely buy more and like the alternative to just tampons and the reusable aspect. Highly recommend!
So far my tween uses them because she was always leaking through her clothes. Since we purchased Sphinx we have had no leaks!
Really like the product and will get a second set soon. Just one thing I didn’t like much is when is time to wash it. I hand wash it and I think it’s quite fiddle to wash it and require a lot of rinse off before it’s fully cleaned. Otherwise, I'm quite happy
I bought 3 pairs and will certainly buy more. Combined with a cup, Sphinx are the easiest way for me to spend a stress free day, and that's how it should always be for us!
Wonderful! I love not having to use pads.
Exactly what I've been looking for!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sphinx works wonderfully for me. I use them together with my cup, and I couldn't be happier with the combo. They are comfy, easy to wash, and feel hygienic
I really love these Highwasit, they look great and feel good. And they keep the mess contained on my heaviest days and they wash out very well, I just took mine on a multi country trip because I know my period would be arriving during or just before one of my 8 hour flights
I SPHINX Yes!
With periods for me comes an extreme amount of period anxiety surrounding leakage. Sphinx fixed that for me!! I cannot reccommend this product enough for it's all around great quality and for making that time of the month a little less stressful!
GREAT NEW ECO WAY TO CYCLE
Like that it’s practical, earth-friendly— as we are not disposing of extra paper, plastic— and least harmful to our bodies, thumps up
I feel so safe wearing SPHINX. They work like a dream, are easy to clean, & they look and feel good. Going to stock up on more soon.
So so great!
Couldn’t be happier with my sphinx! So much better than having tampons staunching my flow all the time and has saved me a bunch of money :-)
I liked the highwaist to cover my belly and the mesh styling. Style and function.
Great concept, Have to get used to this concept, washable, reusable and no need of any disposable. Great innovative design!
I look so sexy! who feels sexy during her cycle!!!!!!!! These undies make me feel good even on a heavy day. I wouldn't definitely rate them as "heavy duty" as the boyshort. My thighs sometimes get a little messy. This may be more related to my shape than the undies. Overall I love them!
They are great but the I bought 1 size up and the waist band folds in half or rolls down
Three months with SPHINXS and pleasantly surprised!!!!!!!!!!!
Work That HiWaist!
I love wearing a pair of HiWaist under my professional dresses. I feel secure, sexy, and ready to take on the day with a big smile.
I bought the highwaist SPHINX and i love the way it fits and all. I like the material its definitely very comfortable. I wore it for my heaviest day but I dont think it was for that much of a heavy flow. It didnt leak through but it did start to feel not as good through out the day and i felt little humidity.
Comfortable, practical and useful, but I still have to use tampons or liners on my flooding days.
These are great, but a little too high waisted for my short torso. I will use them, but I prefer the hiphugger.
Highwaist is super comfortable, and works. I was skeptical at first but I’m totally in love now. I prefer the fit of the other styles (hiphugger and Boyshort) I purchased but these ones still work great!
Great!!!!!!!I have endometriosis and very painful periods. Sphinx has helped me feel more comfortable on those bad days.
I love these highwaist! They have made me feel secure at a time in my life when my period is changing and becoming more unpredictable. No longer do I worry about leaks, no matter how watery my flow might be that month. I bought 2 sets of 9packs I am happy about the decision I made
These pants are my go to pair for a super heavy day (used with a cup). They make me feel a lot safer and more comfortable than a pad but by the end of the day I’m ready for a shower and some dry pants. They do ride up a tad and the waist does sometime roll over at my waist. I got a bigger size, my bad. But I would not be without them :)
good for overflow but doesn’t cover me all the way
I was hoping these would be a substitute for pads, but I have to change them within hours of my first day of my cycle. i bleed very heavily. it would be awesome to be able to walk out the door for the day and not have to change underwear or pad.
I finally feel at ease during my period!
I love the look and feel of my Sphink and those days I almost forget I have my period. During the heaviest days I keep using reusable pads, but overall it's such a great product!!!
Brilliant! I love my sphinx undies!I wear them all the time! they are so stylish and comfortable. The highwaist line is perfect for high waisted pants.
So far my Highwaist have only been used for one cycle but I am 100% happy with them so far. I will review again after 6-12 months.
Best Backup I have ever had, They're comfortable and fit excellently. You don't feel like you're wearing much more than a standard pair of undies. It is fresh down there even after 14H (I did the test) I definitely recommend these!
This is seriously an awesome Highwaist. The fit is perfect and they really do stay dry and fresh—a miracle for those who insist on eco friendly products. Thanks Sphinx!
I use the Highwaist for heavy days--particularly at night . Panty lines are visible with most of my jeans, which I don't like.
I Love These panties!
I actually bought these for a friend for her Christmas present because she has such rough periods. I have noticed easier periods using the highwaist so I figured I’d see if it worked for her. She has used them for a few months now and she loves them! that I plan to buy her another set for her B'day! I love helping people ditch the disposable feminine products for safer, more reliable period products!
I really enjoy wearing SPHINX. Bye bye liners / Tampons / pads. Also, I’m confident that at night I won’t wake up with anything on my bed linens, which is so nice. They are great!
Works great I wore the higwaist for 10 hours on a heavy flow day and it held up. I wouldn't do this at work , what to do when you eventually need to change ?. Maybe you can wear a pad in the beginning and then pull it off and just wear the Sphinx. They do work great though. Wonderful alternative.
So far I have loved these highwaist. I would recommend sizing up or properly measure. I normaly buy small/medium so I ordered a medium and I could've used a large .
I was a little apprehensive about trying sphinx highwaist at first, but other than my 2 heaviest days, they're all I used the 3 last months! They work great! Not at all like a pad. They feel a lot like normal underwear. You don't get the wet feeling like you do with pads until it's time to change them. My only complaint is the fabric doesn't breathe as well as the cotton boyshort. Great product!
I bought my Highwaist 6 months ago with lot of doubts for sure, I was of course hesitant and curiou but I have been looking for alternatives to disposable pads for some time. I tried a few other products like cups/tampons but nothing was really working. After my first month with them I was so impressed no leaks, no mess, and no odor! I used them during day and night and pleasantly surprised. They have leaked on me once since buying them but I was having a unusual blood flooding, if I was using something else the leak would have been worst. l am very impressed and recommend.
Just started using highwaist i am very happy with the result, to get rid of all disposable i will need at least a 9 pack, to add to the 3pack i have now.
Love these Highwaist. I used to be so uncomfortable with pads and could never get a cup to unfold properly. I feel so comfortable in these and can wear them without worrying.
I have vaginismus, it is very painful to have penetrative sex or insert and tampon or cup. Disposable pads are uncomfortable. Sphinx are super comfortable and discrete. I almost forget I'm on my period every time. I also love that it is a greener option.
Sphinx Highwaist is Exactly what I wanted
Perfect fit and perfect coverage. These are sooooo soft and comfortable!
Highwaist, comfy. So absorbent.
Let me sleep without worrying, no leaks, no odor :)
Love this product. Great for ladies with a heavy flow. They are a great fit for someone with hips.
Best period panty ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This panty is so snug and protects my clothes and bed, thumb up!
Would definitely buy again
My granddaugther loves them!!! She's a hard critic, and really difficult to please, so that's saying something.
More comfortable than expected
Quite an investment, but cheaper than other competitors with the same abosrbency. It well worths the purchase! Way more comfortable that conventional menstrual products. I currently only own 1 set of 3 which usually allows me two wears per cycle since they have to airdry after each wash rather than go in the dryer.
The sizing is pretty accurate when you measure your hips in the correct way. The panties are comfortable and super absorbent especially for the heavier days and nights there was no leaking!
Buying more sets . 100%
These are amazing. Made it through a nights sleep on first day of period and a yoga class with no leaking They take a long time to air dry though so pick up more than you would for your average air dry clothing.
For heavy flow highly recommended
I was concerned that this would not be good for leaks while seeping. It turns out they worked just fine but I had a very uncomfortable first night, because I was nervous the whole time and did not move much to prevent leaks. If you’re looking for a heavy flow sleep underwear and you have even so much as a big size belly hanging on the front (7XL) (like me), it won't fit to 100% but it fits perfectly for my neighbour also 7XL with smaller belly and wider hips. Otherwise, these are great.
Finally A hassle free option!!!!!
I am very impressed with the quality sphinx has put into their products. The panty is quite cheap for this high absorbency and it’s worth every penny in comfort and reliability. My granddaughter is 16 and felt the sanitary pads were too bulky and difficult to move around in. Sphinx labels each garment with an absorption rating which are very helpful. Style was also a concern but Sphinx has produced many different styles. Times have certainly changed for the better, so happy I didn’t have to give my granddaughter such a nice option!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Worth trying, was pleasantly surprised!!!!!
Was not sure what to expect with these. I had heard about them but was not sure how it worked and if it worked. they are comfortable ever after having them for 12h. I was surprised that there was not more of a "period" odor when wearing them. I rinse them in the tub and wash them. I hang to dry and haven't had any issues. I'd prefer they were not black so I could see they are completely clean. Worth it to me but again I don't have heavy flow so not sure how it works for those that do. will buy again and recommend to friends and family.
The material is quite soft, except for the absorbent pad part that runs down the middle. They're not bulky and for the most part they just feel like regular underwear. The lining is also the same black colour as the rest of the underwear so it can be difficult to gauge how full it is by looking at it. You can get a pretty good idea if you dab a bit of toilet paper on it when you're in the bathroom though.
Overall I'd recommend if you have a light to regular flow. If it's heavier, you can still use these on the days when things start to taper off a bit or pair them up with a tampon for extra coverage.
1) they are cheap for this high absorbency 2) turns out the company is based in Germany ...
No leaks after several months of washes and use, but even on my heaviest days I only fill like one regular sized tampon. A 6-pack is enough to get me through an entire cycle as it typically only lasts about 2-3 days for me. If your period is longer, or you have a heavier flow, you're going to need more than 6 panties or you're going to need to do some laundry during your cycle (but seriously, who feels like doing laundry when you're on your period).
legs not as tight as others, and not uncomfortable like pads for backup.
These are much more comfortable than others that I own but I am not familiar with this type of the sizing. Thus I measured my hips and it was a perfect fit!!!!. Perimenopausal with fibroids, I'd love to be able to sleep without pads and tampons but that still is not always possible. These are much more comfortable when I know I can dash to the bathroom in a rush but not adequate if you experience heavy flooding, which I do sometimes. These are not an 100% fit for me, but they are more soft, stretchy, and comfortable than others I have bought. I tend NOT to like other bamboo/viscose ones but these have more stretch. Reasonably priced. Overall, recommend.
You get what you pay for!!!!!!
These are really nice quality and I have not had any leak issues. Compared to reviews of other cheaper brands. I wouldn't use these alone if you have a very heavy period, but if you have a lighter one, then these should be fine. Just use them as you would a pad. I have a very heavier flow so I pair with tampon or reusable pad and lighter days I just wear the underwear and I've never had any issues with leaks or anything. I really liked them so I bought a second order.
The only weird thing was the first order was for highwaist underwear and the second order were for boyshort underwear, then I noticed that boyshort is completely made of cotton, I forgot to read the material before ordering, my bad. I bought 1 size bigger XL and they fit really good. It's been a while so I can't remember if I used the size chart. I'm pretty sure I did, but I normally buy L items like regular underwear.
I don't plan on using these for anything other than sleep.
I'm 6ft around 380lbs and I bought these in the recommend size for my measurements. Unfortunately because I carry a lit of weight in my stomach these don't come up high enough on my stomach and doesn't look that great under my clothes. But absorbency is very high and I go through the whole night without any leak or odor.
Absorbancy on point; Odor control
I'm quite happy with the feeling of these, which is my first set of period underwear. My cycles are heaviest on days 1 and 2 and I with relying on the underwear fully, I felt the need to switch to a new panty towards the evening time. I am grateful for not needing to use tampons or pads at work and may couple these with a cup moving forward to allow me to use 1 pair a day.
Get the job done!!!!
My first experience with period parties, but they do the job. I also noticed that the absorbency is very high in comparison to other brands.
I had dismissed period pants for a while thinking they wouldn't actually provide protection. These Highwaist are comfy, last a while even on heavy days and are great at night as the towelling goes all the way up the back. So happy to be avoiding plastic!!!!!!
Exactly what I expected!
Kind of what I was expecting, can be worn on light, moderate and heavy days!
the cleaning is easy and they are comfortable.
The fit is super comfortable. Felt safe and secure throughout my 9-hours shift. Highly recommend, I love them!!!!!!!!!!!!
They are very comfy, no LEAK!!!!!!!
What a game changer!!!!!!!!!!!
My periods are really heavy and usually last 5-7 days. On my heaviest days (day 2-3). I use these panties in conjunction with the cup so I’m not sure how well these would handle the heaviest days but I haven’t had a leak yet. On my light days I wear them without any other products. They’re comfy, and I have never felt wet. Awesome! I suggest getting few packs, because you’re not supposed to put them in a dryer and these take a while to fully dry.
my flow is too light for internal period products (tampons, cups, etc.), pads moved around too much (you feel me here right?). Sphinx works very well for me and don't feel any thicker than a pad would (no diaper feeling!)
Cute and comfy
absorbs as it says it will. I’ve gone through one period with it, post partum, No Leak!!!!!. I went up a size, I was worried about my post partum body. They are spot on.
